      We have moved to Discord   08/04/2016

      There has been a strong desire among the community to migrate to Discord for quite some time. As of today, our community will be using Discord and as a result, we will no longer be actively using our TeamSpeak Server.  The TeamSpeak server will temporarily stay active to help inform all of our move to Discord. Within the next couple of months, it will be shut down completely.  For a quick invite to our new Discord server, you can click here.

      Supersonic Series Stacks Up to Support the Troops   11/07/2016

      vVv Gaming Joins Forces With Stack-Up To Support The Troops     We believe that all gamers, regardless of skill, have a place in competitive gaming. We also believe that great things can come from competitive gaming and the communities that support it. As such, starting today, we are joining forces with Stack-Up in their missions and dedicating the Supersonic Series to the troops. Our goal is to help Stack-Up raise money to fund their missions. Each dollar that is donated goes directly to Stack-Up to support their cause. We invite you to join us in our mission by watching our stream, playing in our tournaments, and donating towards a greater cause: supporting the troops through gaming.  
      Stack-Up's Mission   "Founded in 2015, Stack-Up (TAX ID: 47-5424265) brings both veterans and civilian supporters together through a shared love of video gaming. With the motto: 'Veterans are our Mission. Gaming is our Passion', Stack-Up serves US, NATO and ANZAC veterans through three primary programs: The Stacks, Stack-Up Supply Crates, and Air Assaults." With one of their programs, Stack-Up assembles "Supply Crates" filled with video games and nerdy goodies which are sent out to veterans in combat zones, on humanitarian missions, in recovery hospitals, and sometimes even bases located stateside.  They strive to help improve experiences of service members while they are deployed; instead of focusing on how many days of deployment they have left, Stack-Up encourages them to be participating in video game activities with their battle buddies.  It isn't just about having fun either!  Scientific studies have shown that video gaming can help veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, stress, and even pain relief!

      You can watch vVv Gaming events live on our Twitch channel.

  1. Blazek Do you have any thoughts on a sith assasin build, PVE oriented? Started an Alt and don't really see a lot of them though I have had my arse handed to me by them out in game. Thinking Deception at the moment.
  2. Thanks for the info Xeno! Sounds like a plan to me.
  3. Getting ready for endgame

  4. Hey guys, I know that the primary focus of this article was based on PVP but i was wondering: If as you say that a Carnage build could on a target with high HP (flashpoint/operations bosses) possibly do more damage than the annihilation spec, then would you say then that it would be a viable spec for someone who is PVE focused in the end game versus rage? Also initially i was fitting my maruader with crit stat gear ... but after a converstion with lordjerith early on ... replaced all crit with power for a more consistant damage vs burst damage (again it favored PVE as i saw it) What kind of bearing do you think this would have on spec? Or is power the universally agreed on stat for maruaders? http://db.darthhater...0fe2fe4f6ef4df8
  5. Hello everyone, Just doing a little intro before i started poking around and asking questions on everyones posts. Now for some name droping... I was introduced to vVv by Abadman (who i've known since junior high...20 yrs) since i've been waiting for SW:TOR like everyone else for 2 years and since he had nothing but good things to say i thought i'd give it a shot...though previous WoW guild experiances were less than favorable. Few Things: 1. This is my FIRST PVP SERVER (feel free to groan ) PVP NEWB here, you have been warned. 2. I'm Married with full time job and 3 Kids, schedules are good things for me so i'm primarily hoping to contribute to the guild in a PVE capacity (see again PVP server XP) aka raid, operations, daily grinds, bank filler (when they roll out). Though I hope to pick up some PVP knowledge while here. 3. I WELCOME any advice on gear, stats, or any other attibutes that could lend to my character being more effective. I'm currently playing a lvl 48 marauder with a Caranage build (I know Xenocide..i just read your build guide ..wish i had sooner.) I have had no problems with the caranage spec leveling within the PVE realm (i have done 0 warzones), and as blazek pointed out, i am one who actually enjoys playing that spec. But i have had my arse kicked 3 times by level 50 republic equivalent assasins and once, to my shame, a sorceror. 4. 400 on Artifice/Treasure/Archeology...I've read up on the rediculous process of Magneta crystal making and would like to know who is the guildie with the schematic to construct these and i know you have raid schedules but do you have any times set up for world bosses, or Epic material quests such as the one required to secure Schematics and materials for the Magenta crystals. Pretty much SWTOR has taken up my gaming free time for the past few weeks and looks to for the forseeable future so i hope to see you out there and agian welcome any advice/critiques Thanks SW:TOR - KURAIDAEMON lvl 48 Maruader
